Ms. Kaller will participate in a panel discussion on “Ordinary Equality in the Practice of Law.” New Jersey has long been a standard bearer for legal equality, and the panel will discuss the multifaceted history of women’s legal rights in New Jersey. The agenda will explore the evolution of women’s rights in the state since its founding, as well as the way Article I of the state’s 1947 Constitution has shaped those rights in the modern era. The panel will also explore the complexity of federal Equal Rights Amendment litigation, considering the myriad lawsuits and unprecedented controversary around the ratification, publication, and status of the amendment.

Her practice focuses on commercial litigation, including the prosecution and defense of financing, credit and other banking matters, contract disputes including those arising under licensing and asset sale agreements, environmental contamination contribution actions, and complex litigation.
